Welcome Event 2014

We are very excited to be bringing prospective Scholars from all across the world to Boston to learn more about Northeastern University and our Scholars Program. Below you will find additional information about the program of events and attire for the weekend. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Sunday, March 23
Check-in for the weekend at the University Visitor Center in West Village F will begin at 8:00 a.m through 4:00 p.m.  Scholars and guests will each receive a weekend program, name badges, and other important information about the weekend.  For those of you arriving by air, there will be a Northeastern University representative to meet you at your respective baggage claim area and a shuttle will bring you to campus.

After checking in, programming to meet fellow scholars, opportunities to explore campus, and a chance to have a meal at one of our many dining options will take you through the day into the evening. From 2:00 – 4:00 p.m., all scholars will be participating in team building activities with current scholars.  Casual attire is recommended for this time.  After, the university will provide scholars and guests with transportation to the Museum of Science for the University Scholars Recognition Dinner from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.  Business attire is recommended for this event.  Back on campus, dessert in the Scholars Lounge with current University Scholars will conclude the evening.
